Radiant RFID Awarded Asset Management Contract for New York’s Borough of Manhattan Community College
NEW YORK, New York – The Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC), the largest college in the City University of New York system, selected Radiant RFID’s Virtual Asset Tracker (VAT) to better track and manage its highly diverse and mobile assets.
As educational institutions accelerate technology adoption, keeping up with devices and equipment becomes increasingly critical. By RFID-enabling BMCC’s asset management system, administrators can inventory campus assets quickly and accurately with far less effort than legacy barcode systems.
Virtual Asset Tracker is an end-to-end RFID solution that features web-based modules for asset tracking, departmental transfers, notifications, and custom reporting. Many customers use the Automated Import and Export Tool and the Web Services API to integrate Virtual Asset Tracker to ERP systems including Oracle, SAP, SunGard, and others. Radiant’s smart device application, VAT2GO, can be used on any iOS or Android device and allows users to utilize existing hardware for better asset tracking and asset management.
During an audit, VAT quickly reports what assets are assigned to, located within, or missing from a room. This information enables administrators to quickly and accurately reconcile inventory and account for item movement from room to room, building to building, and even campus to campus -- saving time and money while fostering a philosophy of reuse.
BMCC will implement the solution campus-wide to perform regular audits and “spot checks” throughout the year as well as improve the security and visibility into mobile assets. The project was awarded through Radiant’s GSA contract.
Radiant’s customers use VAT to track and manage over four million dynamic items every day. Kenneth Ratton, Radiant chief financial officer, said, “With broad experience serving large organizations, colleges, and universities, we are qualified to meet complex challenges unique to large educational organizations. We’re excited to bring our knowledge and experience to BMCC.”
